Version numbers in PDF of manual

Rik-4
jwe,

The PDF is showing "March 2018" as the publication date.

It seems that we simply haven't transitioned the file octave.texi to use
the variables in the file version-octave.texi (auto-generated).

The file version-octave.texi has these variables:

@set UPDATED 10 April 2018
@set UPDATED-MONTH April 2018
@set EDITION 4.3.90
@set VERSION 4.3.90

The title page for the Octave manual in octave.texi has

@titlepage
@title GNU Octave

@subtitle Edition 4 for Octave version @value{VERSION}

This is the fourth edition of the Octave documentation, and is consistent
with version @value{VERSION} of Octave.

It seems like the right thing to do is to use these variables in
octave.texi so that the documentation automatically follows the build.

I made that change here
(http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/5cdd48b2d9ca).
